Touched by the people, land and beauty of Gran Sous, Haiti, co-founders Amon Focus and Tamika Blockett, were compelled to start an initiative of service. To contribute to the efforts surrounding Roots of Development, a non-profit based in Washington DC dedicated to the expansion and growth in the Haitian communities, Fresh Water Pop Up Shop was born. Fresh Water Pop Up Shop is a unique fundraising shopping experience that will provide a community of 6,000 people with access to clean water in Haiti. Supporting Roots of Development, the efforts will raise $25,000, the cost of the 3rd Community Water System in the town of Nan Kafe, La Gonave, Haiti, and provide access to clean water for the community. Roots of Development will modify the existing structure by replacing PVC pipe with stronger metal piping and build a tank to purify and hold water for local residents’ consumption.
In an artistic fusion of music, fashion and art, Fresh Water Pop Up Shop is the most highly anticipated event of the philanthropic season. Held at New York City’s premiere nightlife destination and eco-friendly nightclub, Greenhouse in Soho, the evening will be filled with tastemakers, influencers and industry insiders passionate about giving and artistry. On October 11th, every inch of Greenhouse’s 6,000 square feet will be an innovative panorama of creativity with fashion and style pop up shop features, an art exhibit of Gran Sous, Haiti captured by Amon Focus, a silent auction with the city’s most coveted items and music curated by New York’s hottest DJ, hosted by Supermodel and socialite Jessica White. As a special gift to our donors, Fresh Water PopUp Shop has arranged an open bar from 7pm to 8pm with live music from renowned Haitian band, The ZING Experience.

Instead of preparing for a dull and quiet fall, enjoy the season with a 24-karat Gold Facial for a luxurious touch. Every woman wants to remain opulent and beautiful all year round. Now, you can stay refreshed and radiant this fall by adding Skin Beauty Lounge’s 24-karat Gold Facial service. Seen historically in Egypt, Cleopatra remained soft, smooth, resilient and radiant using the golden facial. The 24-karat gold facial is best used to stimulate and rejuvenate the skin. Gold is one of the softest metals, allowing it to be easily absorbed. With anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, the gold facial increases the amount of blood brought in the facial region and speeds up cellular processes and activates cellular regeneration.
Gold is closely connected with the electrons present in the cells that are sensitive to electric charges, making ions become active under its influence, recreating and healing broken cellular connections. Therefore, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will diminish with each golden treatment. This golden advancement will slow down the collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin. It stimulates the cellular growth of the basal layer to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells and provide a tightening effect. Skin Beauty Lounge recommends a 24-karat Gold Facial to keep skin youthful and healthy. Starting at $185, this service is sure to leave you feeling luxurious, radiant and beautiful.
